LLM 83 Discounting Humanity with Johannes Boegershausen

Johannes Boegershausen talks to us about his research project, Discounting Humanity: When Consumers are Price Conscious, Employees Appear Less Human

Johannes is a PhD marketing candidate with UBC Sauder School of Business

Brands often position themselves with low prices, discounts, and sales . When consumers encounter these low‐price signals, they may adopt a price-conscious mentality, hyper-focused on getting the cheapest deal.

A price-conscious mentality can also have negative implications on how consumers interact with other human beings—especially employees.

Listen as Johannes describes the research they conducted and the results.
